Ol' Poop Face

Song about the Oregon Trail 'pooter game

Drums, bass, vox, loosely singing about the game we love. This is my two-piece band Pony Time.

I really, really like the fuzz bass. I wish the vocals were up a little bit in the mix, but it's not a huge thing.

Sounds kind of like The Creation, which is a Very Good Thing.

This is fantastic.

Ha! I agree that it'd be nice to have more vox just for parsability reasons, but the buried and noisy thing works pretty well aesthetically aside from that.

I like the sound of this, and the general idea, but honestly, I can't understand a damn thing you're singing.

I guess that was just an obnoxious way of asking if you could post the lyrics. Pretty please?

In keeping with garage rock tradition the lyrics take a back seat to the melody and all that jazz. I guess I just never thought anybody would be interested in what I was saying. I hope their simplicty doesn't diminish an already simple song.

Well we're checking out the pretty faces
What am I to do?
I thought that I could ride along
Ride along with you

CH: Now I'm on the Oregon Trail
And I'm going out west like hell
And I'm staring at the grave of Ol' Poop Face
Laying down such an effing disgrace

I thought that I could be the banker
And get along
Headed of to my goal in the Dalles
Where I belong

But I think that we'll be alright
Fording rivers way late at night
Shooting bear and hunting food
This game's so awesome and crude

Thanks! See now I know what the title is talking about.

Nothing wrong with simple.

I like how "effing disgrace" sounds kind of like "epic dance craze".
